Welcome to the UCCS Alumni and Friends Association!
As you prepare to celebrate your graduation from the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, the Alumni and Friends Association would like to extend our congratulations as we welcome you into an alumni family that now numbers more than 34,000 graduates.
The goal of the Alumni and Friends Association is not only to keep you connected to your alma mater but also to your former classmates as you grow and develop professionally. Each year, we offer a number of special events (link to http://www.uccs.edu/alumni/alumni_events.html) designed to enable networking in your communities, appreciation of the arts, interaction with other alumni and their families, and lectures from your favorite faculty members. We also offer events in many cities throughout the country that will allow you to stay connected, even if you no longer live in Colorado Springs.
As you prepare to graduate, please take a moment to update your contact information online (link to http://www.uccs.edu/alumni/update.html) - it will only take a few minutes of your time and will ensure that we are able to stay in touch with you once you leave the campus.
In addition to the spring commencement ceremony, we have several activities designed to help you celebrate your graduation and make a smooth transition into the job market (or to the next level of your career if you are already employed). This spring, we are pleased to offer the special events listed below.
Once you graduate, we'll contact you about additional opportunities to stay connected to UCCS through special events such as wine tastings, networking nights, reunions, etc. Have an idea for a special event? Let us know.

1. How much does it cost to join the Alumni and Friends Association?
Membership in the Alumni and Friends Association is complimentary for all graduates. We encourage you to consider making a contribution to a college, department or program that is personally meaningful to you, but you aren't required to do so to take advantage of our benefits and services.
2. How will you keep in touch with me?
We communicate with our graduates primarily via email. To help us keep you informed of campus news and special events, make sure to update your contact information on our website.
3. Isn't the Alumni Association all about money?
While we encourage all of our graduates to consider making a contribution to a college, department or program of their choice, doing so isn't required. What we're really about is building relationships: we want to give you the tools you need to succeed both personally and professionally through networking events, career seminars, and alumni benefits and services.
